Coronavirus Important Updates

Seton Hill University’s Harlan Gallery is hosting the “Women in Art” exhibit through November 22. All work in the exhibit was selected by Maureen Vissat’s, assistant professor, art history, Women in Art class. This exhibit displays 40 diverse pieces of art created by women.

The students within the class were responsible for selecting the winners of the exhibit. In first place was Dianna Williams with “Repose,” second place was awarded to Tracie Darin for “Father, Mother, Child;” and third place went to Lynn Mack for “Weathered.”

The Women in Art exhibit awarded honorable mentions to Susan Vincent’s “Still in the Womb,” Lydia Ross’ “People of New Guinea: Young Warrior,” Dianna Williams’ “Typical Kids,” Debby Glick’s “Not Your Garden Variety Drug” and Julie Bernstein Engelmann’s “The World Is Not Broken.”

Harlan Gallery Director and Assistant Professor of art, Carol Brode noted, “This is a unique experience for the students that allows them to partake in a professional atmosphere. The Women in Art exhibit is a powerful time for students and professionals to work hand-in-hand with each other in building an exhibit.”

Vissat’s Women in Art class is a unique course in which the students are graded on their ability to develop an exhibit for Seton Hill’s Harlan Gallery. The students began the semester learning and collecting information on female artists from the past. The students then used their knowledge to acquire the most prominent pieces from entries submitted from southwestern Pennsylvanian female artists for the exhibit.

Harlan Gallery hosts free, public artist talks and lectures, symposiums and related events in conjunction with many of the exhibits. The exhibits in Harlan Gallery are free and open to the public. The Harlan Gallery hours are Monday - Thursday 5-8 p.m., Friday 1-3 p.m., and Sunday 1-4 p.m. or by appointment. The Harlan Gallery is closed during university breaks, and open during the summer months by appointment only. For more information, contact Harlan Gallery Director Carol Brode at or (724) 830-1071.
